Ed Sheeran wrote this uplifting African-inspired song about hope with Fuse ODG in Ghana. The song's title is in Twi, a language spoken in Ghana. It translates to "All will be well."
Fuse ODG (real name Nana Richard Abiona) is a South Londoner of Ghanaian descent. He is best known for his 2013 single "Antenna" which peaked at #7 on the UK singles chart.
Speaking on BBC Radio 1 Extra, Sheeran recalled the penning of the tune: "I wrote a song in Twi, the Ghanaian dialect in Ghana, at Fuse's house with all his mates. That was probably the most fun experience because like…being in the studio with someone like Fuse is just a party the whole time." Sheeran went to Ghana in June 2016 at the invitation of Fuse and spent three weeks in the country. They worked on a few different songs, but only "Bibia Be Ye Ye" made the ÷ album. Sheeran says that when they would finish a song, Fuse would with about 200 people where they would play it all night.
